Greenfield Plantation house description

This modern and well appointed villa is located in the Sarasota/Bradenton area and is in a very private position in a peaceful golfing community. It is situated at the end of a cul-de-sac in a beautiful lakeside setting with preserved natural woodland at the rear.

The Sarasota/Bradenton area is renowned for its theaters and galleries, magnificent beaches, amazing choice of restaurants, and its great shopping.

Downtown Sarasota has picturesque shopping avenues, lined with palm trees, and offers theaters, clubs, up-market specialty shops, and a wealth of excellent places to eat. Nearby St Armands Circle is a unique shopping experience with stylish boutiques, upscale jewelery stores, gift shops, cafes and gourmet restaurants. Spend time in one of the nearby shopping malls, one of which is Prime Outlets at Ellenton, which has more than 130 stores with big-name designer clothes at bargain prices.

Of the many wonderful beaches to explore, Siesta Beach boasts the finest, whitest sand in the world. This along with the tennis courts, concession stand, picnic tables and playground for children, makes it the most popular beach of all.
Explore the unspoiled North Lido Beach, picnic under the tall pines, and watch the exotic birds – egrets, herons, osprey, ibis, pelicans and many more.

There are several state parks within easy reach, with nature trails, lakes and picnic areas. All around there is a fantastic variety of wildlife in beautiful natural surroundings.

The accommodation includes a formal dining area, a spacious open-plan living room, a well-equipped kitchen and a breakfast nook. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed and a large en-suite bathroom with a corner bath and walk-in shower. There are two other bedrooms – a twin and a double – and a second bathroom. Both the master bedroom and the double have direct access to the pool deck.

There is free access to high speed internet

Outside is a solar-heated pool (28’ x 15’) which can also be gas heated at extra cost. The large pool deck has a covered area, with poolside table and chairs, and sun loungers.

The villa is integrated in a golfing community. The golf course is 18 holes and is one of a few in the area that is open to the public.

The villa is conveniently located about 2 miles from Interstate 75 which is the main link to Tampa Bay, St Petersburg, Busch Gardens (45 minutes drive) and the Disney attractions (90 minutes away via I4). The beautiful Gulf beaches are just 20-30 minutes drive away.

Travel to the villa is very straightforward. Apart from convenient access by road, the Sarasota/Bradenton Airport is just 20 minutes away; Tampa International 40 minutes, Orlando airports about 2 hours and Miami airport about 4 hours away.

                Three times in three summers !! This property in Old Grove Circle at Bradenton must have some appeal...and it does in bucket loads ! It suits our tastes right down to the ground - spotlessly clean, exceptionally comfortable and with all the amenities one could possibly ask for - oh , wait thats not quite true - there is NO Hot Tub ! ....or maybe thats not quite right....having been there in the summer months - who in their right mind needs a Hot Tub when the outside pool water termperature gets near 90 degrees ?! Luxuriate in the warmth , comfort and tranquility that this property provides....we'll be back !

                Recommended for: Sightseeing, romantic getaway, age 55+, families with teenagers.

                Owner response: Another satisfied guest - that's great. Even the weather came up trumps - we look forward to welcoming you again in the future!

                We have now used this excellent villa four times - which tells a story in itself. The villa is always kept in excellent condition and has been steadily improved and cared for over the last few years that we have been coming to use it. Its a lovely spacious villa in a superb setting - to be able to sit by the pool and enjoy the view over the nearby lake and all the wildlife that it attracts is really great. Super owners and a really superb villa that suits both couples and families too (as we have used for both purposes).

                Recommended for: Sightseeing, romantic getaway, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers.

                Owner response: Many thanks for your kind comments. We are especially pleased to welcome guests who have stayed with us on previous occasions. We try to maintain the standard of the villa and endeavour to introduce improvements during the times when we stay there. Dave and Margaret

                This was our second winter at this lovely villa! The owners are wonderful; they are quick to answer emails and go out of their way to provide guests with all the conveniences of home. We have truly enjoyed making this our home away from home for the winter. The location is ideal; not nearly so much traffic as closer to the beach. The pool and lanai are spacious and add to the living area. We have loved observing the wildlife in and around the adjacent pond. We quickly made friends in the neighborhood where we enjoy walking and riding our bikes. There are so many fantastic restaurants in this area and lots to do even if you aren’t a beach enthusiast! Within an hour’s drive are Bush Gardens, Myakka National Park, Big Cat Habitat, Lipazzan Stallions Training Facility, and the Mote Aquarium. The Van Wezel Center for Performing Arts, located nearby on the waterfront in Sarasota, offers a variety of outstanding venues. This home and grounds are very well maintained; if there is anything that needs attention, the management company is quick to respond. Our experience here has been outstanding in every respect. Our sincere thanks and appreciation to the owners!

                Recommended for: Age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities.

                Owner response: We love this area so much ourselves and are always pleased when our guests appreciate it too. We're glad that you enjoyed your stay so much. Dave and Margaret

                We were able to enjoy a 2 week family vacation at this villa. It was very clean and a wonderful place to be. The house had everything that we needed. The pool was enjoyed by all of us. The neighborhood is a nice area as well with plenty of friendly people around you. The VRBO listing was very accurate and pictures were exactly what the house looked liked, which was very helpfui. The owner was very quick to reply and also very helpful and kind. We really enjoyed dealing with them. The management company was very helpful and good to deal with as well. We would highly reccomend this villa for a great family vacation. We have been to that area for the last 5 years and also enjoy going to the Ellenton Prime Outlet for shopping and Applebee's and Carabba's for dinner.

                Recommended for: Romantic getaway, age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway, families with teenagers.

                Owner response: We're always delighted when our guests enjoy staying in our villa and in this beautiful part of Florida. Dave and Margaret

                Our family stayed at this property this summer, and had a wonderful vacation. The home is located next to a lake. On the other side of the lake you can see the golf course. Behind the house is a nature preserve. The setting is truly amazing. The home itself was clean and very well-maintained. It is beautifully decorated, and had all the amenities we needed. We had to have internet connection to stay in touch with our business and thought we would miss not having wi-fi, but using the hard-wired connection in the breakfast nook worked fine (the only drawback was being tethered to one location). The property owner is great. He was very responsive and answered our questions and concerns quickly and efficiently. It was truly a pleasure dealing with Dave as well as the staff at the management company that maintains the property. The Bradenton location is pretty central. We were about 15 minutes drive from Sarasota, which has nice restaurants, museum and cultural activities. Fifteen minutes in another direction took us to beautiful Anna Maria Island. Our vacation was all about taking a break from a hectic work environment. This home was so comfortable and serene that we hung out there for most of our vacation. We would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful, peaceful and quiet place to relax and unwind.

                Owner response: Thanks you for your kind comments - we're delighted that you enjoyed your stay and were able to spent time relaxing in the villa. We look forward to welcoming you again at some stage in the future. We try to maintain and improve the home in response to guests' comments and welcome any suggestions for things to enhance their stay. With regards to the wifi connection, we expect to provide a wireless router during our next visit which will improve the flexibility for computer use. Dave and Margaret
